Subject: huh?
turn the pages by hand?? heck, i can do that with my home scanner, whoever bought this got seriously ripped off...

Subject: plastic flaps can cause problems in kirtas
kirtas machine leaves artifacts of its plastic flap on the scanned pages, which cannot be cured completely on color pages. The end results do not look encouraging.

Is it worth $190,000?

(just in case folks wanted to know)

I have seens machine from 4digitalBooks running and it is also very impressive !
I Love this product and seems more production oriented than kirtas technology.
